Dedicated Linkedin app is coming to Windows 10 screens near you

So here's a brief explanation: Windows 10 Enterprise E3 and E5 are Microsoft's subscription-based versions of its operating system. This would be a successor to the Creators Update, mostly because its launch date is projected to take place in the fall.

In April, LinkedIn revealed that it had crossed the 500-million-member milestone, meaning that many of those activities are occurring on web browsers and the service's mobile apps. The reason for this is Microsoft wants to make sure the update is fully compatible with PCs before it's pushed to them (you can, of course, download and install the update manually at any time).

"Microsoft is working with our partners to provide compatible drivers for these processors", the support note explains. "If you install the Windows 10 creators update, icons and text may not appear at all, or may show up as solid color blocks or bars", Acer explains on its website.

Letting customers retain the upgraded Windows 10 Pro licenses, even after bailing from the preview or dropping a subscription, will be in step with other Microsoft decisions regarding the version.

Microsoft will roll out LinkedIn within the Windows Store from today and it will be available in all LinkedIn markets by the end of the month. If you have already installed Creators Update and are experiencing problems, you can use Windows 10 recovery options to restore your system to the previous build. That's potentially a problem as far as security is concerned, as Microsoft is set to drop official support (meaning updates) for the Anniversary Update in early 2018. There will also be a "Long-Term Servicing Channel" that will be updated every three years and receive long term support.

In fact, last week during Microsoft Inspire we saw some of this integration with Dynamics 365 demos during the Vision Keynotes.

Whatever the situation turns out to be for these particular machines, the situation demonstrates some uncertainties introduced with the Windows-as-a-Service model.

Also, if you are concerned about notification overload, don't forget you can go into Windows Settings Notifications & actions and control what alerts you see from the app.
